Original email announcement via the CEDAR newsletter:

The NCAR Advanced Study Program is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications from students for the newly launched GVP Bridge Program (does not require an NCAR sponsor) .

GVP Bridge
Newly launched this year is the GVP Bridge, which provides a one-month internship at NCAR for graduate students who may be early in their career or who don't have a fully defined collaborative project for a regular GVP visit. The internship will give the student an opportunity to explore potential collaborations at NCAR with the goal of a longer visit in the future. Unlike the regular GVP process, this program does not require an application from an NCAR sponsor.

Please pass along this opportunity to your university partners, and refer students to the GVP Bridge if they aren't quite ready for a regular Graduate Visitor Program (GVP) experience. The deadline for applications for the GVP Bridge is November 30, 2021.
